Jeb Bush took a jab at President Trump that many believe went too far. He was speaking at Yale University on Tuesday and commented that he goes home every day to children “who actually love me.”
The former governor of Florida and GOP presidential candidate also joked that he was “still in therapy” from the 2016 election, according to the Yale Daily News.
Bush was giving a lecture titled “A Conversation with Jeb Bush: Restoring Conservatism in America.” The lecture was sponsored by Yale’s The William F. Buckley, Jr., Program.
Ironically, Bush called for politicians to be more polite in the conversation. And his comments about the president’s children came just after First Lady Melania Trump’s spokesperson asked the media to stop mentioning the Trump’s youngest son in the news.
“While I know the media is enjoying speculation & salacious gossip, Id like to remind people there’s a minor child who’s name should be kept out of news stories when at all possible,” Stephanie Grisham tweeted.

Grisham wrote this message in the wake of adult film star Stormy Daniels’ interview with “60 Minutes.” Daniels talked about her alleged affair with the president that took place in 2006, shortly Melania Trump gave birth to their child. Trump has denied the allegations.
President Trump has four other adult children: Donald Trump, Jr., Eric and Ivanka who are all with his first wife Ivana; and Tiffany with his second wife, Marla Maples.
Eric Trump responded to Jeb Bush’s low blow tweeting, “I actually love my father very much. #PleaseClap.”
